Eight unbeaten welterweights take part in the knockout that takes place over one night with a prize fund of £50,000.

Should Kremner win his three bouts to become ‘Ultimate Boxxer’ he will pick up a cheque for more than £20,000.

Kremner, who work in the emergency hub for Greater Manchester Ambulance Service, said: “One of the organisers approached Matthew Hatton (Kremner’s trainer) to ask whether I would be interested.

“He thought I would be suited to the format and it is something different.

“Though most of the other boxers will be more experienced, I fancy my chances of nicking it.

“A high-profile event like that hopefully will help propel me to another level.”

And Kremner has revealed his training will be geared specifically for the event.

He said: “I am going to be sparring with three different partners in a day to try and replicate the format.

“I will have one sparring session in the morning, a second at lunchtime and a third in the afternoon.”

The ‘Ultimate Boxxer’ is reminiscent of Barry Hearn’s Prizefighter that was held 10 years ago at York Hall, Bethnall Green, London.

Kremner was in action at Oldham Leisure Centre at the start of March where he extended his unbeaten stint as a professional to eight fights.

He scored a technical knockout against Kent’s Ricky Rose who had won all three of his bouts as a professional.

Rose, 28, had won his first three professional fights, but he scored a second stoppage of his pro career.

Kremner made light work putting Rose down in the first, third and fourth rounds when the bout was stopped.
